Dealer I am working with said I could place an order but it might be refused by Ford. Does that sound legit? I would be purchasing under D plan if that matters. TIA!
final buildout of 2012 doesn't occur until July so the order cutoff of 5/17 gives you plenty of time to get your order in. Sounds like they just want a now deal vs an order. Can you find a new dealer?

If not I can order one for you via D plan and have it shipped to your local dealer as well.

If I wanted to Pre-order a ST I would need $1000 down? For the rest would you run the rest through Ford Credit now? Or when it is ready to ship?
I have been thinking about getting one but I would need to finance it. Thanks ahead of time.

You don't actually do the financing until the vehicle shows up, that way you avoid making payments on a vehicle that doesn't exist!

You can finance through any bank, just depends on rates, etc. Our dealership is doing $1,000 down and it obviously guarantees your name on that specific vehicle build. Also in the event a life changing event occurs (lost of job, etc) we will refund the money. We will have no issue selling them.

Ok. And if purchased through you would you ship it to CA? Also if a down payment was made would you be able to run the financing without me being at your dealership?

Not sure about a new dealer as this one is part of wifeys employer auto group and is 125 miles away. I placed order but GSM said his inventory controller only gives it a 50% chance of being picked up. Want to try this first. May have to fall back on you so to speak if need be. Thanks!

Ya it would be shipped to California. Yes all that happens is paperwork gets sent to you via FEDex.

Hey imccrea, I went through this thread and saw you've got some great advice for people - I was wondering if you could help me out?

I'm planning on purchasing (if the pricing works out right) a Focus sedan in about a month or so and had a few questions for you.

What I'm looking at:
- Titanium Sedan (Auto)
- Sterling Gray
- Premium Package, Parking Tech, Moonroof, Handling Package, Navigation

On Ford's website, that comes out to $26,525.

What's the best plan/package I should shoot for to get me the best price? I've seen things about the A/Z and X-Plans, but I'm not entirely sure how they work. For what it's worth, I'm the military so I'm entitled to those discounts as well.

Also, I saw you were saying that the build cut off is 5/17. Does that mean that if no dealerships have what I want in stock (or can't do a dealer trade), I'm out of luck? When will they start taking orders for custom models again? I'm assuming that when it does pick back up, it'll be for the 2013 MY. Are there any changes coming around?
